Thanks for the info. I'll try to get him out camping some this spring and summer (when we're not playing baseball) and see if I can get him interested again this fall.

Cars look good. And hey, if Chuck Norris can win the Tour de France with two flat tires and a broken chain, your boys should be fine.

finished the cars with time to spare.


Final results were identical. Both boys finished with a first and two seconds in their heats for a second place final standings.
They were very happy to advance to districts.Last year both their cars crashed and burned to say but hey they have fun doing it.
Both these styles are very easy for the kids to do also. The swiss cheese car is very simple. just a wedge with dimple in it.The red car took a little scroll saw work but just have to watch the kids fingers and count them when your done.

My advice: Don't put the cheese in until AFTER you cook the egg. Why? Hard to tell when the egg is done, because the egg is solidifying while the cheese is melting. Also, use freezer ziplocks, not regular. My sons are going to do this on the next campout with their patrol. They have had cleaning up issues in the patrol, and this is their solution.

You have to be 11 (or in 6th grade) to be a Boy Scout, or be ten and have gotten the Webelo Arrow of Light Award. Being a Webelo is optional, it just lets you become a Scout at a slightly younger age.

unrelated to scouting - That's a sweet-looking les paul in your Avatar picture.

Related to Scouting: this article was posted on a facebook page earlier today.

http://blog.scoutingmagazine.org/201...are-different/

If anyone's interested.

I don't tend to post that often but I really found the article on ways Eagle Scouts are different to be interesting. I'm a Scout Leader in Canada and both of my boys (16 and 14) have earned their Chief Scout Award which is our top award for youth. They definitely fit many of the points made in the blog about Eagle Scouts. Thanks for posting it.

Hey, guys! Just back from Wood Badge. A great experience! Learned lots about teamwork, leadership, and communication. And had super fun! Thanks again to those Scouting Dis Dads (especially Stopher) who encouraged me to do it. If you have the opportunity, I would definitely recommend it!

Our troop is going to particpate in the "War of 1812" reenactment at Niagara-on-the-Lake today. Just curious if any of the other DisDads out there were going to be there too since there are around 2000 Canadian and American Scouts attending this camp.

Just had my first exposure to Scouting in the organizational/welcome meeting last night. Quite by surprise, too... DS hadn't been interested in it until the Scout Master pitched to his class on Tue or Wed this week.
Hope I can glean a few nuggets from the thread and we can be active contributors to the pack. :salute:
What, no salute smilie?
